Jurgen Klopp Unconcerned By Goal-Shy Liverpool

Ben Woodburn

The BT Sport pundit told BetVictor: "I have fond memories of St James' Park and scored a hat-trick for Liverpool in the corresponding fixtures back in 1998". When you're playing the top teams, if you're not careful you get found out.

"I'm really happy. We have Roberto Firmino, maybe not 25 goals but ask anyone in the Premier League and they will say, "What a player".

"I have no problem with criticism, only when people think we can not sort our problems". It's about creating and using the quality of the players we have. But it is still Christmas for our families.

"For us, we are used to it".

"I really can not imagine anybody wants to watch football on this night, but I'm not so important".

But Klopp insisted there was enough firepower at Liverpool, who visit Newcastle United in the Premier League on Sunday.

Newcastle will be no easy trip, however, with the Magpies finding themselves just two points behind Liverpool. That's good for us and the only thing that's important.

"With every call-up I want to develop and for us develop as a team in order to be successful".

He said: "I'm not interested in criticism, only the opinion of the people".

"We are really working hard, it's not like we lost our football knowledge overnight".

"We all know these boys will score".

"Chelsea, still a good side".

"If you allow balls to go into the box willy nilly, with wingers not doing their jobs then, yes, it's going to end in goals".

He also explained that Liverpool Boss, Jurgen Klopp, needs someone who will protect the centre-backs like Matic, like Fernandinho, Kante.

"It's good when you have all these players around, but it's not lining up the players and hoping something will happen -- they all need rhythm and need to be in good shape and all that stuff", said the German.

"That's professional football - there are offers for different players and that's how it is".
